To Promote New Pre-Pay Program, Starbucks Offers To Foot Coffee Bill For 30 Years

This one is for all you Starbucks diehards who are sick of waiting in line for your daily fix.

As a promotion for its new order ahead and pre-pay program, Starbucks is offering free drink or food every day for 30 years to 10 customers.

You can get in the running by paying with the Starbucks app, starting Dec. 2. The offer runs until Christmas.

Portlanders will be the first test market for the new pre-pay program. Right now, the program is scheduled to start here before the end of the year. The rest of the country, including Starbucks’ home base in Seattle, will have to wait until the end of 2015.

“Portland is close to Starbucks, but it’s also an ideal location,” said Starbucks spokeswoman Linda Mills. “It’s a loyal base of customers, and it’s a community that’s looking to embrace new technologies first.”

USA Today reports that if you were to buy one a Starbucks coffee each day for three decades, your bill would come to $22,995.
